Starting from July, 1st 2016 a PhD position (payment according to TV-L E13, 50%) is available in the context of a newly granted DFG-funded project in the group of Prof. Dr. V. Lessmann at the Institute of Physiology, Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg, Germany.

In the project we want to analyze the role of BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) and dopamine in hippocampal synaptic plasticity using physiologically relevant spike timing-dependent plasticity (STDP) stimulation patterns at the single cell level (Edelmann et al., Neuropharmacology 2014, Edelmann et al., Neuron 2015). We will apply a combined approach of patch clamp recordings, pharmacology, optogenetics and calcium imaging methods. In addition, different immunohistochemi­cal and molecular biological methods will be employed.

We offer intensive training and supervision by our experienced team, the opportunity to attend national and international conferences and a diverse state-of-the-art working environment with a variety of established methods in electrophysiology, behavior, live-cell imaging, molecular biology, and cell culture; embedded in a well-established European network.

We are looking for a highly motivated team member with a solid background in neuroscience (e.g., long-term potentiation, synaptic transmission) and a great interest in performing electrophysiological experiments and optogenetics. Experience in electrophysiology (especially patch clamp recordings) would be beneficial, but is not a strict prerequisite.

Applicants should hold a Diploma or equivalent Master degree in Biology, Neuroscience or a related field and should send their CV, a brief summary of their Diploma or master thesis, Diploma/Master certificate and two letters of reference (or contact info of two referees) to Volkmar Lessmann (
